Vidor Junior High PE teacher and coach Priscilla Healy is Vidor ISD’s December Employee of the Month. Healy was nominated by co-worker Robin Corley who says, “Priscilla Healy continues to uphold her Packard tradition of being a pillar in the community. She is active in the community, her church, and the local school district.” After Harvey, Mrs. Healy helped muck out homes of many in the community, including VJHS staff members. She continues to help her colleagues as they rebuild, and was instrumental in securing donations for staff to have hot meals at school when their kitchens were disfunctional at home. “She is a mentor and role model to the students at Vidor Junior High. She always encourages her students and athletes to pursue excellence. They are always willing and ready to give 100% to Coach Healy because they never want to let her down.” Students say she gives 100% they they want to give mothing less for her.

The city of Vidor is known for country music, barbque festival, football and its’ heart. You can now add the Home of the USA Annual National Checkers Tournament to its’ resume.

The tournament will be open to all children in the United States between the ages of 8-12. Franks says, “This is going to be an exciting event for all involved. The City of Vidor helped get this off the ground by becoming Host of the District 8 Checkers Tournaments 2 years ago. The National Organization found out we were serious about checkers and decided to allow us to host this new event for the coming year. We are guaranteeing the Children’s Winner a $500 Scholarship. There will be many more awards including trophies, bikes, electronics, games and more. We hope to make it special for every child involved.”
